The use of ERP systems in didactics of higher education in the era of the concept of Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0

  • Witold Torbacki Maritime University of Szczecin
Keywords: ERP, Industry 4.0, Logistics 4.0


The article presents challenges faced by higher education didactics resulting from the development of new concepts, Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0. In this context, there is now a research problem in how to conduct the didactic process, to be related to the real issues of the production companies and the TSL industry that occur in the everyday life of a company. The article may be an aid in choosing a modern ERP class system for the needs of the didactic process in a higher education institution, which should support a sequence of integrated procurement processes, production and distribution of goods as part of the Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0 concept. The selection process presented in the article should include the formulation of requirements regarding the selection of the appropriate ERP system by the university, the choice of the system and the parameterization of the solution to the specifics of the didactic classes along with the development of the laboratory schedule.
